Cleo Wade Poems
- Really deep love takes time and commitment.
“And if you want love… the really good kind… you are going to have to get your hands dirty.”
- The best relationships are the ones where you can be 100% yourself.
“I am really into your crazy.”
- There’s nothing like finding someone who makes you feel whole.
“What could be more than us, you and me, a thing so complete.”
- Falling in love can be scary, but it is oh so worth it.
“Fall in love a little and if you are feeling very brave… fall in love a whole fucking lot.”
- Being in love means a little less “me” and a little more “us”.
“You want to fall in love? Lose your fear. You want to stay in love? Lose your ego.”
- Of all the fish in the sea, you’re my favorite one by far.
“You are my fish in the sea.”
- In good times and bad, love makes you feel it all.
“You make me feel all of my feelings.”
- You deserve nothing less than the best, so go ahead and show off.
“Be the type of love you deserve, if for no other reason but to show us all how it’s done.”
